7:01 am
areas but major cities spared the worst. this morning, hundreds of thousands are without power, schools still closed and airlines scrambling to get up to speed. hack attack. high-profile twitter accounts hijacked overnight. nazi symbols posted on the pages of celebrities, politicians and media outlets. who was behind it? take two. the dad whose live television interview became a worldwide sensation after his children crashed into the room goes back on tv. >> once my son came in in the roller, then it was sort of -- there was nothing i could do. >> the lesson he says he'll never forget today, wednesday, march 15th, 2017. ♪ don't believe me, just watch >> announcer: from nbc news, this is "today" with matt lauer and savannah guthrie, live from studio 1a in rockefeller plaza. good morning, everyone.
7:02 am
welcome to "today" on this wednesday morning. we had the weather storm yesterday and back to politics this morning. >> what a difference a night can make. a lot to cover in politics, the top story this morning. >> we're getting a rare look at some of president trump's tax returns. documents that refused to release during the campaign. there's also new fallout over the republican's plan to replace obamacare. and the president's claims that phones at trump tower were wiretapped. peter alexander is at the white house with more on all of this. good morning. >> good morning to you. we're getting reaction from president trump as we speak. just moments ago, he tweeted, questioning how a reporter, quote, went to his mailbox and found mr. trump's tax returns. the president calls it fake news. the white house says the leaked 2005 form reinforcing what donald trump has been saying all along. he's an incredibly successful businessman. it is also refocusing a spotlight, at least for a moment, on mr. trump's unwillingness to turn over his returns. this morning, the release is
7:03 am
raising questions about who leaked the form and why. >> reporter: overnight, a rare look at documents president trump is still himself refusing to share. >> we have his federal tax return for one year, for 2005. >> reporter: msnbc's rachel maddow airing a portion of his 2005 tax return obtained for a reporter by d.c.report.org. the forms revealing mr. trump paid $38 million in federal income taxes on $152 million of reported income. writing off more than $100 million in losses. his effective tax rate, 25%. the reporter who obtained the documents suggests they could have come from president trump. >> he has long history of leaking material about himself when he thinks it is in his interest. >> reporter: the white house verifying the documents authenticity seemingly while attacking the media. you're desperate for ratings when you push a story about two
7:04 am
pages of tax returns from over a decade ago. trump has repeatedly ignored calls to share years of concerns, claiming they're under audit. >> the only one that cares about my tax returns are the democrats. >> reporter: the audit excuse is a sham, say the democrats. it was a brief distraction from the roll i can rollout of the republican health care plan. the president will try to deliver a booster shot, taking his message on the road. touting jobs in detroit and health care in nashville. despite fierce criticism, some from within the president's party, the white house isn't abandoning the republican plan. >> this is it. if we don't get this through, the goal of repealing obamacare and instituting a system that will be patient centered is going to be unbelievingly difficult. this is the vehicle to do that. >> reporter: democrats keeping up the pressure. >> trumpcare is a wreck.
7:05 am
>> reporter: arguing the republican bill only benefits the rich. also this morning with the senate sub committee set to hol a committee about russian interference in the election, lindsey graham is warning the fbi not to ignore his letter about the president's wiretapping claims. >> i'm going to make an announcement about the letter and let the fbi know they're about to screw up big time if they keep running to the intel committee and not answer that letter. >> reporter: the white house still standing by president trump's explosive wiretapping allegation, aimed at president obama. >> i think he feels very confident that we'll ultimately what will come of this will vindicate him. >> in plain english, some republicans are saying it is put up or shut up time for the administration. that includes new comments from the judiciary committee chairman. he said he'll block the confirmation of president trump's deputy attorney general
7:06 am
pick until he gets russia-related answers from the justice department. matt and savannah? >> peter, thank you very much. we'll talk to senator graham about russia's interference in the election and the accusations from the president, that he was wiretapped. we'll find out if senator graham is going to get the information he wants today in a moment. breaking news overnight, the tax returns. ari melber is with us. we get a two-page summary from 2005. is there a bombshell here? >> not a bombshell, but we learn that the president, like many wealthy americans, pays a lower rate lawfully than so many others who make less than him. >> he said, i fight not to pay taxes. i don't want to pay as many taxes. the white house actually put this information out, preemptively, late last night, and said it was illegal for reporters to talk about it. is it? >> federal law governs tax returns. if you're a government official or someone authorized to do it, you can go to jail for up to five years for leaking them.
7:07 am
the media in this area, like so many others, can report on unauthorized disclosures without being a part of the underlying crime, if there was a crime. >> quickly, based on what was leaked and what wasn't included and the timing, any ideas who might have leaked it? >> that's the big question. right, matt? we had over a year where there was a lot of incentive and demands to get these things. any part of the tax returns never came out. here we are, after the election. there's a small number of people who would have this. donald trump, his accountant, family, people at the irs. in that small universe, who leaked it, we don't know. i'll tell you a lot of what's in there on this particular year goes towards things donald trump has said. he did have high revenue. the other thing on the law, matt, it is not illegal to leak your own tax returns. >> the document says client copy. >> who got it? we don't know. >> thank you. joining us now, republican senator lindsey graham. senator, nice to see you. good morning. >> good morning. slow news day. >> exactly. so the reports are you and the
7:08 am
white house have given director comey a deadline of today to let you know whether there is an active investigation into active ties to the trump campaign. a, is it true? b, do you think you'll get the information today? >> yes. two weeks ago, we met with director comey, who i like and admire, and told him by the 15th, we'd like to know if there is an active criminal investigation. because congress should not interfere with it. we're going to have a hearing on russia. i don't want to bump into a criminal investigation if there is one. i think the entire country needs to know if there is something there. in terms of the letter we wrote, i want an answer. i asked the fbi and department of justice last week for any evidence of a warrant that would allow wiretapping. hadn't heard a thing. >> if it doesn't happen, you said the fbi is about to screw up big time. >> yeah. >> what happens if they don't comply? >> congress is going to flex its muscle here. you see it all over the place. senator grassley has been a great ally with senator feinstein, the chairman and
7:09 am
ranking member of judiciary. we'll issue a subpoena to get the information. we'll hold up the deputy attorney general's nomination until congress is provided with the information to clear the air as to whether or not there was a warrant issued against the trump campaign. >> you're saying, number one, director comey should tell you whether or not there is an investigation into trump campaign ties to russia. number two is the issue we're talking about. the president made an accusation against then president obama, that he wiretapped his phones. you have asked the fbi to produce any evidence of a warrant or application for a warrant, any request to surveil trump or trump tower. do you think you're going to get that evidence today? >> i think if we don't get it today, the congress is going to ramp up the pressure. there are two different questions. is there an investigation? because i need to know before i move forward into investigating russia from a congressional lane. i don't want to interfere with a criminal investigation if there is one. in terms of whether or not there
7:10 am
was a warrant, that's an easy question to be answered. and the president has suggested that the former president had his campaign wiretapped. >> right. >> the only way to do that is through a warrant. tell me whether or not there was ever a warrant issued against the trump campaign. they're going to have to answer that question. >> it is not the first time the president, senator, has made some accusation and then said to congress, you guys should look into this. >> right. >> you are pushing hard to get answers here. are you trying to send the president a message that what he tweets is going to be held -- he's going to be held accountable for what he tweets and for the accusations he makes? >> i'm trying to take him up on his challenge to look into his accusation. i don't know of any evidence where the fbi tried to obtain a warrant against the trump campaign to wiretap them. the accusation was made. he's challenged the congress to get to the bottom of it, and we will. if you want to challenge the congress to do things in the future, we'll take you up on it. >> personally, you're the kind of guy who strikes me as having,
7:11 am
as my friends would say, a good b.s. monitor. you know what that means. >> yes. >> what does your monitor tell you about this wiretapping story, senator? do you think it's real? >> when i first heard it, i thought, that was a wild claim. i really don't know. if it is not true, just tell me it's not true. why is it taking so long to get the answer? so i have no evidence of it. i'm suspicious of it. but now i'm getting concerned because it is taking so long to answer my letter. >> let me ask you about this. the white house has same t simultaneously dug in. the press secretary yesterday saying they're confident the president's accusation will be verified and they'll be vindicated. now they're moving the goalpost. when the president said i was wiretapped, he put it into quotes, meaning all types of surveillance. there were several tweets he said president obama tapped my phones. what do you make of that? do you buy it, in terms of the shifting accusation for what the
7:12 am
allegation is? >> well, it has changed from president obama wiretapped my phone to, was there any warrant issued against the trump campaign, trump tower or trump operatives. i want to know if there was. if there's not, we need to put it to bed. here's something that would be explosive. if the federal government was able to obtain a warrant from a judge, then they had to have probable cause that the trump campaign was colluding with the russians. director of national up te intelligence clapper said there was no evidence of a warrant. if there was warrant, it'd be big news. i don't think there is a warrant but i wish they'd tell me. >> oh, by the way, there's health care, senator. >> yeah. >> as it is written right now, this bill in the house, is it dead on arrival? >> it is mortally wounded. i don't know if it's died yet. rand paul would not vote for the house bill because he believes refundable tax credits is an
7:13 am
entitlement in another form. my state did not take medicaid expansion. the house bill allows open enrollment for the entire country all the way through 2019 for medicaid. which is fundamentally broken. i don't like that. this is the last best chance for republicans to pass health care by themselves and screw it up. here's what i hope the president would do, try to get a good bill. if you can't, let obamacare collapse and challenge the democrats to help him fix a problem they created. >> real quick question. is this a good bill in is it? is it a good deal? >> not right now. medicaid is not where i want it to be. this thing will collapse, obamacare, under its own weight. we're trying to do too much too quick as republicans. we're running through stop signs like the cbo letter. much like president obama did. slow down. get it right. you're not going to get 60 votes to buy insurance across state lines. that is a fantasy in the senate.
7:14 am
if you think that is important to health care reform, it is never going to happen in the senate. >> too bad you don't speak your mind, senator. it's awfully nice to have you here. thank you so much. >> good morning. >> by the way, tomorrow on "today," an exclusive interview with someone he is familiar with. former south carolina governor and new u.s. ambassador to the united nations, nikki haley. her first since her confirmation. >> he does have a way with words. cleanup underway after tuesday's powerful winter storm hit the northeast with heavy snow, ice and high winds. we have coverage beginning with miguel almaguer in hard-win worcester, massachusetts. good morning. >> good morning. this is what so many are waking up to here in worcester homes. cars buried under snow. it's not just the street. look from our drone, it is much of this community, much of the state that looks just like this. we are five days from spring,
7:15 am
and we are buried in snow. >> reporter: overnight, more sleet and snow from a punishing storm pummelling eight states and 70 million people. >> one week it is warm. the next, blizzard. >> reporter: with parts of the northeast buried under more than two feet of snow and ice, the roads were dangerous and deadly. in new hampshire, a teenager lost her life after losing control of her car. in connecticut, an elderly man killed by a plow. while another driver flipped over in upstate new york. >> it is really bad. >> reporter: in pennsylvania, an 80 mile escort by the national guard to rush a 2-year-old to the hospital. a half dozen students injured after a school bus rollover on slick roads. a tractor trailer jackknifed on a boston bridge. homes are covered in ice. our team in the middle of it all. >> i'm in new york, where we're talking about 40, 50 mi
7:16 am
50-mile-per-hour wind gusts. car alarms are being set off. heavy snowfall here with several feet high. >> i'm blake mccoy in ridgewood, new jersey. while the storm may have been a bust in some of the bigger cities, it still packed a punch here. more than 8 inches of snow on the ground kept most people home. >> i'm anne thompson in boston. this nor'easter brought the city to a stand still. people heeded the advice to stay off the roads and stay home and stay safe. >> reporter: the hurricane force winds ripping through the region, massive waves pounded the coast. a blizzard in worcester. a reminder that winter isn't over yet. >> for those hit by cold temperatures in all that snow, the weather it's going to help today. the temperature will stay below freezing across so much of this state. while it is white in cities like worcester, in big cities like washington, d.c. and new york by the coast, they were spared for the most part. doesn't really help the folks though here, who are waking up
7:17 am
to all this snow. back to you guys. >> miguel almaguer, thank you. the storm is still having a major impact on air travel coast to coast after the cancellation of thousands of flights. how are the airlines getting back on track? gabe gutierrez is at laguardia airport for us this morning. good morning to you. >> matt, good morning. the airlines are scrambling to catch up. at laguardia, they're up and running but there are virtually no lines behind me. the challenge today will be rebooking all of the stranded passengers. on tuesday, there were more than 6,200 cancelled flights across the country. already today, more than 1,000 flights have been cancelled. the major airports impacted here in the northeast are the new york city airports, laguardia, newark and jfk, as well as baltimore and boston. as flight aware.com's misery map, it is clear but red is popping up in the new york city airports as we see delays creep
7:18 am
up a z we up, as well. public transportation is mostly up and running. amtrak is running modified service in the northeast. if you do not have a flight already rebooked, chances are you're out of luck today. it could be several days before the airlines clear this backlog. >> thank you very much. that brings us to al. what do we expect? >> interesting, before the broadcast we were talking. the chief of forecast operations for the weather prediction center in maryland said he gave an interview to the ap saying, on monday afternoon, we actually knew that the totals along the coast were going to be lower than we thought but we didn't change it because we basically wanted people to heed the forecast. >> not take it too lightly. >> yeah, not take it lightly. i see that as kind of a cover your butt thing. the fact is, we did say there was going to be a change -- there could be a change in that path and it'd make a difference along the coast. if it was closer to the coast, we'd see less snow.
7:19 am
we were listen the lower ranges of the forecast. new york city, over 7.5. philadelphia, 8.3 inches. you go further to the west, mount pocono, 24 inches of snow. the suburbs of new york, new jersey, 12ines. hartford, 15 inches of snow. for today, we'll see wrap around snow, lake-effect snow, as well. snowfall amounts, additionally through rochester all the way to burlington, vermont, we could see another foot of snow into
